COLOMBO (News 1st): Petitions challenging decision to hold the General Elections on June 20th was called up again at the Supreme Court today (May 21).

Yesterday, President’s Counsel Saliya Pieris appearing for the National Election Commission informed the Supreme Court that the General Elections cannot be held on 20th June 2020.

PC Pieris also informed the courts that a General Election can only be held around 10 weeks after health authorities give the green light, adding there could be other factors that delay the holding of an election even further.

President’s Counsel M.A.Sumanthiran appearing on behalf of Attorney-at-Law Charitha Gunarathne, the first petitioner, informed Court that he will not pursue his application following the submissions made by the counsel appearing for the Election Commission stating that the election will not be held on 20th June.
